Spider-Man Slinging His Way to the Mac
2:23 PM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story

Aspyr Media announced today that they will be bringing Stan Lee's Spider-Man to the Mac. In their September newsletter, they revealed that Westlake Interactive's Mark Krenek is porting the video game adaptation of this wall-crawling and web-slinging hero. Spider-Man was originally developed by NeverSoft for the Playstation and ported to the PC by Gray Matter, and if those names sound familiar, they should. They were also responsible for bringing Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 to the PSX and PC, respectively. Here is more information from Aspyr's newsletter:

Spiderman is a third-person action/adventure, based on the Marvel comic series. Players play as Spiderman, high school student Peter Parker who is bitten by a radioactive spider and granted tremendous powers. Spiderman uses his powers to fight off evil and make the world a safer place.


In highly detailed environments, inspired by the upcoming feature film, Spiderman must use his Spider-Sense to side-step danger, his Spider-Agility and quick wits to evade pusuit and his Spider-Strength to overcome the Green Goblin, Venom, Scorpion, Rhino and other arch enemies, in his pursuit to rid the world of evil.


Spidey kicks butt as he shimmies up the side of buildings, shoots webs, swings across the night sky, taking on a legion of sinister villians in this brilliant 3-D world.


System requirements are currently unavailable. However, be sure to check in to our site for more updates on Spidey's progress on the Mac!


Preorders will begin being accepted today. Get your preorder in soon! Spiderman will be available, via our web site only, for $49.95.

Spider-Man for the Mac is expected to be released in November. The game was a hit on the Playstation and the PC gaming media have been impressed with the conversion. If your Spider-Sense is still tingling, check out Activision's Spider-Man page and GameSpot's preview, which has screen shots and more.
